Bone Crossed the fourth installment in the Mercy Thompson series was my favorite thus far. In this action packed novel, Mercy manages to get herself in some predicaments. I consumed this in a few hours and loved every minute of it.
Best Man Worst Man by Stacy Gail is a delightfully funny, contemporary romance, complete with chocolate, and some serious toe-curling kisses. Gail delivers a charming feel good romance that I easily consumed in an afternoon.
Third Grave Dead Ahead is the third novel in the Charley Davidson series. While I personally do not recommend it, these urban fantasies can be read as a standalone. I have loved this series from its inception. Jones writing style and gift for sarcastic humor has this series on my pre-order list. This novel was released on January 31st, 2012 and after a failed attempt to read it in one evening. (I fell asleep sometime around 2 AM with my nook in my hands..LOL) I quickly consumed the remaining chapters the next day.
If you have been following my blog you know that Jayne Anne Krentz, aka, Amanda Quick, aka, Jayne Castle writes one of my favorite series the Arcane Society. Cooper Beach is a spin-off series that introduces a new family; the Coppersmiths. This is a contemporary paranormal romance filled with mystery and suspense. This is book one of the Dark Legacy series (or trilogy), I devoured it in one evening and loved it.
Unseen is another novel involving Krewe of Hunter’s leader Jackson Crow. He is in Texas, putting together a new crew, since his team is stretched to the limit with investigations and the characters have all been paired off. Graham delivers a novel filled with murder, mystery, suspense, paranormal activity and a new romance. I like the way the dead assist the living in these mystery driven romances.
I picked up Fear the Worst for my e-reader over the summer and was delighted when it was chosen as book of the month for Coffee Talk on Goodreads. Barclay delivers a suspenseful thriller filled with twists and unexpected surprises; as protagonist Tim Blake searches for his missing seventeen year old daughter Sydney.
Carrier of the Mark is the debut novel of author Leigh Fallon. I ordered this for my Nook when it released in January of 2011. I bought it because I absolutely loved the cover. While the synopsis revealed very little; it was enough to pique my interest when it mentioned Ireland. I am not Irish, but I love reading stories set in Ireland. Fallon delivers a tale, with romance, folklore and supernatural elements. I found this first book in the Carrier Trilogy to be delightful.
